BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A new effort aims to give those suffering from cancer, and their families, a chance to explore Lake Memphremagog by electric boat.

Vermont Electric Co-op and other groups teamed up to bring the 22-foot electric boat, Floating Grace, to Newport and will begin offering the trips just after Memorial Day. Organizers say the boat can accommodate up to 12 passengers and will provide “peaceful and healing excursions on the water.”

Cat Viglienzoni spoke with Christopher Johansen, one of the organizers of the effort.
